You'll be expected to create clean copy, informative content (with an eye for SEO-friendly headlines and copy), and grow into an expert in the apparel and footwear related side of the technology industry. Daily and/or online publication experience preferred.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Develop fresh ways to look at technology and trends for feature and shorter-form articles
  • Collaborate with editorial director and associate publisher to execute on technology content for the publication
  • Research, report and write technology news stories, features and special projects
